From the Journal Constitution:

An organizer of Atlanta’s annual Black Gay Pride celebration was shot dead in southwest Atlanta early Wednesday morning, police said.

Durand Robinson, co-owner of the popular gay nightclub Traxx, was found dead in the middle of Hadlock Street around 1:30 a.m., Atlanta police said. Officers said he had been shot in the chest.

Robinson, 50, will be honored during a candlelight vigil on Sept. 1, according to In The Life Atlanta, the nonprofit group that organizes Atlanta Black Gay Pride.

Oh God…
It never seems to end. The casual violence. The anonymity of the killing, the cold viciousness of it.

Bury another black man, bury another gay man…does the world care?
I’m so mad sometimes…

“Every light estinguished brings the night ever closer. Every voice silenced quiets the choir.”

Rest In Peace, Durand Robinson
